Product Description

The Intel Core 2 Extreme processor is the world's first quad-core desktop processor, delivering the latest in cutting-edge processor technology and unprecedented performance across a wide range of applications and benchmarks. All Intel Core 2 Extreme processor QX9000 series are based on the industry-leading 45nm manufacturing technology, providing another giant leap forward on the road to multi-core and parallel computing.

45nm manufacturing technology, with hafnium-infused Hi-k transistors, enables even more processor performance by doubling the transistor density, improving efficiency and speed relative to the previous generation, and increasing cache size by up to 50 percent. These new Intel Core 2 Extreme processors deliver more performance without using more energy.

For the added technical flexibility experienced enthusiasts want, the processor bus ratio locks (over-speed protection) have been removed in the Intel Core 2 Extreme processor. This delivers the ability to tune the system, taking it beyond the specification limits.

Desktop PCs based on the Intel X48 Express Chipset, combined with the Intel Core 2 Extreme processor, establish a new standard for performance. Designed with headroom and engineering passion, the Intel X48 Express Chipset supports new dual-channel DDR3 memory technology and next generation PCI Express 2.0 Dual x16 graphics to unleash exceptional performance in today's extreme applications.

Shatter all gaming barriers with the astonishing speed and performance of Intel's fastest quad-core desktop processor with four processing cores to power the latest, greatest generation of multi-threaded games. Shift your 3D gaming into high gear with radical, performance enhancing features that Intel designed to wow those living on the edge: larger cache and Intel Smart Memory Access. Get unmatched quad-core Home Theatre PC performance for intensive multimedia applications such as video compression, photo editing, retouching, and publishing. With Intel HD Boost, you will experience higher performance for intensive applications such as video compression while maintaining high visual quality.

The Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core processor is a multitasking monster, so users can do more in less time. Significant improvements in system responsiveness are possible because certain tasks can be off-loaded to specific cores. Users can now take on several tasks at once, such as rendering a video, playing a game, or working on basic productivity software, because additional processor resources are free to handle other tasks.

Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad-Core processors are equipped with a Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS) to enable more efficient processor and platform thermal control. Thermal sensors located within the processor measure the maximum temperature on the die at any given time. The acoustic benefit of temperature monitoring is that system fans spin only as fast as needed to cool the system and slower spinning fans generate less noise.

This Intel-designed thermal solution for boxed processors utilizes a 4-pin header with variable fan speed control, based on processor temperature and power usage to minimise acoustic noise levels. The latest 45nm boxed Intel Core 2 Extreme processors include a new, more advanced thermal solution with improved acoustic and thermal performance.

Key Features

  • Quad-Core Processor
    Provides four complete execution cores in a single processor with up to 12 MB of L2 cache and up to a 1333 MHz Front Side Bus. Four dedicated, physical threads help operating systems and applications deliver additional performance, so end users can experience better multi-tasking and multi-threaded performance across many types of applications and work loads.
  • Chipset Support
    Intel Express Chipsets offer an array of exciting capabilities including dual graphics, and deliver an impressive level of performance for demanding users. Other third party chipsets may support Intel Core 2 Extreme processors; contact your board manufacturer for compatibility.
  • Wide Dynamic Execution
    Improves execution speed and efficiency, delivering more instructions per clock cycle. Each of the four cores can complete up to four full instructions simultaneously.
  • Smart Memory Access
    Improves system performance by optimising the use of the available data bandwidth from the memory sub-system and reducing the effective latency of memory accesses.
  • Advanced Smart Cache
    Dynamically allocates the shared L2 cache to each processor core based on work load. This efficient, dual-core-optimised implementation increases the probability that each core can access data from fast L2 cache, significantly reducing latency to frequently used data and improving performance.
  • HD Boost
    Accelerates the execution of Streaming SIMD Extension (SSE) instructions to significantly improve the performance on a broad range of multimedia and computer intensive applications. The 128-bit SSE instructions are now issued at a throughput rate of one per clock cycle, effectively doubling their speed of execution on a per-clock basis over previous generation processors. This is now improved further on 45nm versions with new SSE4 instructions for even better multimedia performance.
  • Virtualisation Technology
    Allows one hardware platform to function as multiple "virtual" platforms. Intel VT improves manageability, limiting down-time and maintaining worker productivity by isolating computing activities into separate partitions.
  • Intel 64 Architecture
    Allows the processor to access larger amounts of memory. With appropriate 64-bit hardware and software, platforms based on an Intel processor supporting Intel 64 architecture can allow the use of extended virtual and physical memory.
  • Execute Disable Bit
    Provides extended virus defence when deployed with a supported operating system. Memory can be marked as executable or non-executable, allowing the processor to raise an error to the operating system if malicious code attempts to run in non-executable memory. This can prevent the code from infecting the system.
  • Digital Thermal Sensor (DTS)
    Provides for more efficient processor and platform thermal control improving system acoustics. The DTS continuously measures the temperature at each processing core. The ability to continuously measure and detect variations in processor temperature enables system fans to spin only as fast as needed to cool the system. The combination of these technologies can result in significantly lower noise emissions from the PC.
  • Designed Thermal Solution
    Includes a 4-pin connector for fan speed control to help minimise the acoustic noise levels generated from running the fan at higher speeds for thermal performance. Fan speed control technology is based on actual CPU temperature and power usage.
